Many men in Nashville have concerns about their abdominal contour, especially stubborn fat and excess skin. Oftentimes the loose skin and excess fat does not improve with diet and exercise. For our clients who desire a tight, toned stomach, we recommend our exclusive male tummy tuck in Nashville. This surgical procedure for men removes excess skin and fat from the stomach and tightens the abdominal muscles. The result is a stronger core and smooth, flat stomach.
At Plastic Surgery Affiliates, Dr. Olivia MaDan and her team can help you achieve the tight, toned, age-defying body of your dreams.
Why Do I Need a Tummy Tuck?
Also known as an abdominoplasty, a tummy tuck is frequently requested by our male clients who have experienced considerable weight loss or have loose skin due to genetics and aging. In many cases, our patients have inadequate improvement of their midsection with regular diet and exercise. An abdominoplasty may be the best option for your midsection goals.
Your Initial Consultation
During your consultation with our experienced Nashville plastic surgeon, Dr. Olivia MaDan, an individualized plan will be developed according to your abdominal contour goals. During this meeting, we will review your medical history to ensure you are a suitable candidate for a male tummy tuck. We will also discuss with you the requirements, results, and recovery expectations of the procedure.
Prior to your abdominoplasty surgery, you will be required to abstain from nicotine products, avoid blood-thinning medications (including Motrin or aspirin), and maintain a healthy, balanced diet. Following these instructions will reduce the risk of complications and optimize the healing process.
What To Expect During Your Tummy Tuck Procedure
Performed under general anesthesia at a AAAASF surgical center, a tummy tuck begins with a low, horizontal incision that typically extends from hip to hip. Our skilled surgeon, Dr. MaDan, then lifts the skin and fat from the underlying abdominal muscles. The abdominal muscles are then tightened to strengthen your core and flatten your stomach. Afterwards, the excess tissues are pulled down and permanently removed. Your belly button remains the same; a new opening is made in the tighter abdomen skin. Usually, Dr. MaDan performs a drainless tummy tuck. Multiple sutures are placed inside the surgical site to minimize fluid buildup. The tissues are closed in layers, using absorbable stitches. Dressings and a compression garment are placed before you are awakened from anesthesia.
The tummy tuck for men in Nashville is usually an outpatient procedure, meaning you will go home the same day. You will need a driver and someone to stay with you for 24 hours after anesthesia. Recovery time off from work will depend on your occupation and job requirements.
Tummy Tuck Recovery
The first week of recovery is usually the most difficult after an abdominoplasty. Your pain and discomfort will continue to improve, day by day. Your activity level for the first two weeks after surgery will be restricted to nothing intense; no exercise, no heavy lifting more than 10 pounds, no soaking or swimming. Usually you are able to shower two to three days after your procedure.
Scar therapy typically begins at your first postoperative visit. Your compression garment should be worn at all times for the first six weeks after surgery (except when showering). Complete cessation of all nicotine use is essential to optimize healing.
Swelling is expected and most significant during the first month of your recovery. After three months, there will be minimal swelling. The scar should be easily concealed with clothing. Its appearance will improve and fade with continued scar therapy and time. Your results should be maintained and even improved after returning to a healthy lifestyle with consistent diet and exercise.
During your preoperative visit, we will provide you with your customized plan for optimal recovery following your male tummy tuck procedure in Nashville.
